Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

SIX masked teenagers wear­ing hoods and gloves robbed a ter­ri­fied youth at knife­point in Ras­trick.

A mo­bile phone, bank card, trainers and coat were taken from the 17-year-old in Carr Green Lane (pic­tured in­set) on Tues­day, Septem­ber 5.

One man, who didn’t want to be named, told the Ex­am­iner: “A knife was pushed into the vic­tim’s chest and foot after an at­tempted rob­bery of a sep­a­rate youth min­utes pre­vi­ously in vicin­ity.

“As­sailants fled via foot­paths and open ground away from build­ings and CCTV and sus­pected to be from Hud­der­s­field. Hal­i­fax CID at­tended and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.”

And a man­ager at Ras­trick Foot­ball Club wrote in a let­ter to par­ents: “Dear all, the club chair­man has asked all age group man­agers to let par­ents know about an in­ci­dent on Carr Green Lane at around 9pm last night.

“The 17-year-old son of one of the coaches was robbed at knife­point by a group of around six peo­ple near the school en­trance.

“They stole his bank card, phone, jacket and trainers. Apart from a black eye, he was not in­jured, but was ob­vi­ously very shaken.

“The at­tack­ers made their es­cape to­wards Hud­der­s­field via the fields. They had tried to rob some­one else five min­utes earlier. Please be vig­i­lant.”

West York­shire Po­lice con­firmed they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.
